This Week’s Pick:

Iron and Wine is the stage name for musician Sam Beam, who often wrote, recorded and produced his music in his home studio. His debut The Creek Drank the Cradle features acoustic guitars, banjos and slide guitar; the whole often said to be along the lines of Nick Drake, Elliott Smith and Simon & Garfunkel. His cover of The Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights” was used in a commercial for M&Ms, as well as in the soundtrack for Garden State. Beam was previously a professor of Film & Cinematography.

Runner-Up:

Montreal’s own Miracle Fortress.

House of Reggae

The doors swung open at Montreal's first House of Reggae last week and nothing is left to the imagination. Don't ask what genre of Reggae you'll find there because you'll find it all- lover's rock, dancehall rooth culture, mento, ska, soul reggae, roots, rock steady, well, you get the picture. and the list is long, each with its own history, its own versions, social and spiritual.

Cadence Weapon

Just when I thought I couldn't take Montreal's vicious 2007/2008 winter anymore, I called Rollie Pemberton, better know as Cadence Weapon, at home in Edmonton. The 22-year-old DJ/rapper/producer said it was cold and windy, and I imagined frosty arctic air whistling through Edmonton's downtown streets - making me glad I was in la belle province.
